Ontology or the Theory of Being - Peter Coffey

This quote was added by malevolarky
While the possession of knowledge for its own sake is a motive of research it is not the only motive. We seek knowledge in order to use it for the guidance of our conduct in life, for the orientation of our activities, for the improvement of our condition; knowing that knowledge is power, we seek it in order to make it minister to our needs.
